How to change spark plugs and wires on a 1965 Mustang?

I need a good step by step "How to" on changing the spark plugs and wires on a 65' Mustang along with any tools needed to do the job. I'm looking to do it myself because it needs to be down soon so it can be painted. It has a 289 V8 and the new spark plugs have been gaped to .35 (according to the guy at Auto-zone that's the correct gap for it). If you need more information, just let me know and I'll try to get it to you.

Thanks,

~Warren

Mark the number one position with tape on the cap and use this link for a reference putting them back...
you'll need a 3/8 ratchet and spark plug socket to get them out.. A picture might help too..

Remove and replace one wire at a time. That way you won't have to worry about getting them mixed up.
